Integrated Planning and Reporting

ipr.jpg
Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) legislation was introduced by the NSW State Government and sets requirements for all Councils to lead the development of long term plans for their city, detailing community aspirations and strategic directions.  

Council has embraced this opportunity to engage with our community to ensure our planning and reporting is informed, relevant and responsive to community needs.

This diagram represents how we achieve this.

 

Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan

The Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan reflects the community's vision for the city and is our guide for action.

Delivery Program and Operational Plan

The Delivery Program is the point where Council takes ownership of the community strategic plan and outlines how Council will contribute to achieving its strategic outcome.

Fees and Charges

The Fees and Charges Register outlines fees for all user-pay services, including car parking charges, swimming centre fees, footway restaurant fees, parks and recreational fees and building certificate fees.
